At the time of writing this, I am in my second month of leading growth at Mirror and working full time in web3.
It has been a deeply fun mind blast. The broader crypto space is a complete whirlwind that I am working hard to understand and integrate into: there is constant noise, money, new things, trends, personalities, tools, and an unreasonably unrealistic pressure to know EVERYTHING at all times.
Over the Thanksgiving Holidays, there was a brief opportunity to take a breath and reflect. I realized: Without intentionality on how to approach web3 and a career in this space, it’s too easy to drown in the FOMO-laced web3 crypto sea.
Pretend it’s the 90s or early 2000s. Can you imagine saying “I’m going to go work at an internet company!” and then being expected to know absolutely everything that happens on the internet at any given time? Even at that time, it would have been impossible.
It’s going to be a long one, but you can handle it.
(Let’s be real: you’re going to play this game whether you want to or not. Don’t sleep on the game. We’re already here.)
The game starts when you are born, and it ends when you die.
